I am a 50%er giving 75%....ok I'm kidding. Whatever I do, I try to do full on, but usually end up stumbling to the finish line. Since everyone loves self-depricating humor, this blog is perfect for me to release my pent up aggressions. I'm a mom...

Easy Chicken Shawarmas! My kids LOVE them and they enjoy putting whatever they want on them! You'll grill a dozen boneless, skinless chicken tenderloins after sprinkling them with either an easy greek seasoning in a jar or really, your favorite rub from a basic salt, pepper, oregano, garlic type mix. Take one Pita, Wrap, Lavash - whatever your family likes, and spread any or none of the following first: Tzatziki (garlic cucumber greek yogurt spread), Hummus (of any flavor), Plain Greek Yogurt, or any kind of sandwich spread. sprinkle some of the diced up grilled chicken and top with any or all of the following: finely diced cucumbers, tomatoes, lettuce, onion. Wrap them up and eat them! Delicious!

What are the best ways to keep kids entertained & well-behaved at a formal event or luncheon such as wedding?

Andrea C.

We have a little suitcase that we bring to every event we go to. Each of them can choose 3 things to put in the suitcase, as long as they do not make noise. Usually, they make friends with other kids at the event because of this. They end up in a corner playing superheroes, Star Wars figures, or Power Rangers, depending on what they bring that day. Not only does it keep our kids busy, it keeps other kids busy too! One sure fire thing we do every time is feed them BEFORE we get in the car so they have full bellies. I never leave home without juice boxes and snacks for each of them - and a few extras too. I never rely on anyone to have what my kids need and it's never failed to come in handy!
